Interesting Points

Though, the constituency is politically dominated by TDP and left parties, but in the intense competition between these two and Congress and left parties have won from this constituency. But changing political scenario resulted in TRS gaining prominence and TDP loosing it as some of the latter's cadre have shifted to TRS. Even left parties have been ceeding ground to TRS. Though Congress is in better position compared to TDP and left parties, its leader in the constituency has become a matter of concern due to his bad reputation of catering more of his time to political issues than to developmental issues in the constituency. Under his tenure of last five years, no significant development has taken place in the constituency
